I'm trying to drill a 7/8" hole into a piece of plexiglass. The plexiglass is an average width (came from ********** with the blue film on it but I'm not sure what the width is). Because of the size I bought a hole saw attachment in 7/8" and drilling slow but it's not working. Anyone have a better suggestion? Also, can I use a jigsaw to cut straight line in the plexiglass or do I need to bring out the wet saw?

Thanks!!!

I cut plexiglass on my tablesaw and mitre saw the same way I cut wood and have never had any trouble. no need to turn the blade around. I have only used a carbide tipped blade when cutting it though.

Thank you both for your responses. This will help a lot since I was scoring the plexiglass with a utility blade and then breaking it. This will be a lot less painful!!
